The 81-year-old former Majestic Theater building in Cudahy, is getting a makeover.
The 81-year-old former Majestic Theater building, located at 3620 E. Layton Ave. in Cudahy, is getting a makeover. It is the first building to get a facelift with assistance from the city’s new façade improvement program.
Work crews have removed the 1970’s-era stucco from the exterior of the building. The project’s goal is to return the structure to its original appearance, including restoration of the cream city brick, new siding, awnings and tile and a brand new marquee. Construction will continue over the next several weeks and then be completed in spring.
The building is owned by the Ademi and O’Reilly Law Firm, which is the building’s anchor tenant. Other tenants in the building include Anderson Smith Advertising Consultants, Scherrer Insurance and Mr. Paul’s Hairstyling for Men.
The Façade Improvement Program provides design and construction grants to help commercial business and property owners reinvest in existing downtown properties
“It is fitting that the city’s first façade improvement project be done to such a significant building in Cudahy’s history,” said Mayor Ryan McCue. “The revitalization of this structure is just the beginning of the rebirth of our entire downtown area.”
